We are sure to be losers when we quarrel with ourselves; it is civil war.
—Charles Caleb Colton (English Angelic Priest)
Gray skies are just clouds passing over.
My job is about the most fun thing I do, but I have a broad set of interests, going places, reading things, doing things.
—Bill Gates (American Businessperson)
The violence we do to ourselves in order to remain faithful to the one we love is hardly better than an act of infidelity.
—Francois de La Rochefoucauld
The person who tries to live alone will not succeed as a human being. His heart withers if it does not answer another heart. His mind shrinks away if he hears only the echoes of his own thoughts and finds no other inspiration.
—Pearl S. Buck (American Novelist)
A reward cannot be valued if it is not understood
—Phillip C. Grant
The end of man is action.
—Thomas Carlyle (Scottish Writer)
Between the optimist and the pessimist, the difference is droll. The optimist sees the doughnut; the pessimist the hole!
Happiness depends upon ourselves.
—Aristotle (Ancient Greek Philosopher)
It is not a struggle merely of economic theories, or forms of government or of military power. At issue is the true nature of man. Either man is the creature whom the psalmist described as a little lower than the angels … or man is a soulless, animated machine to be enslaved, used and consumed by the state for its own glorification. It is, therefore, a struggle which goes to the roots of the human spirit, and its shadow falls across the long sweep of man’s destiny.
—Dwight D. Eisenhower (American Head of State)
